Hostage Standoff Ends in Rankin County

 Rankin County deputies took into custody a man who stabbed his brother in the head today.  

The brothers got into an argument at a home on Florence-Byram Road.  Deputies arrived on the scene after the stabbing.  The suspect barricaded himself in the home and a standoff ensued. Members of the SWAT team talked him into surrendering and took him into custody without further incident.  

The victim has been released from the hospital after treatment for his injury.

Is it just me, or do we seem to be having a lot of hostage/stand-offs with the police lately.

There will be no charges. A family altercation, that is all. By the way, how is Mr. Mardis and his business doing? I know people like the limo driver he assaulted at Reunion Country club want to know.

Dispatcher alerted deputies to go to the fork in the road and take it.

Reckon the Goon Squad remodeling crew weren't available for the standoff. The house they previously managed to remodel in Crossgates is still destroyed and covered in tarps. Must be a standoff between the homeowners insurance and the city/county.

If you arrive at Reunion Country Club in a limo....You might be a redneck.

I'd be willing to bet alcohol was involved. In fact, over half of all murders in the US involve alcohol.

In the US, we have a major substance abuse epidemic disguised as a violence problem.

Is there a more red neck county in the U S A? Fighting drunk deputies, wife beaters (almost wife murderers), stabbing of siblings, and lord knows what else.

"If you arrive at Reunion Country Club in a limo....You might be a redneck."

If you an adult in a limo going anywhere or doing anything in the Jackson region, except driving it or the immediate family of the deceased, you ARE a redneck. If you are a teenager and not immediate family of the deceased, your parents are rednecks. And in either case, there is about a 90% chance that the person paying for it cannot truly afford it and should not be wasting money that way. And as in many other cases, skin color ain't got nothing to do with "redneck."

As to the hostage situation, if "fighting over first and second with their sister or other close relative" and "fighting over which felony to commit first" are at 4-1 or higher, I'll take 'em each for $100. If "fighting over ballet, opera, or symphony tickets" is 100,000-1 or higher, I'll take it for $2. Yeah, it's a sucker bet, but with those odds it's still better than Powerball.

"Is there a more red neck county in the U S A?", Baldwin County, Alabama, used to hold that title, back in the day. They exported rednecks to other areas. Yes, sir, redneck capital of the world.

You people are delusional.
Rankin isn’t even the most redneck county in Mississippi.

That crown would probably go to one of the counties where the most high end restaurant in the County Seat is a Wards, and Dollar General is the man shopping hub.

Redneck capital of the world is Itawamba county. Mayor of Fulton dresses like Barbie. I swear. Look it up.

I wonder if the house in Jackson I sold just to get out of Jackson is for sale? Right now might be the time to check on it. Living in Rankin county were are forced to make a decision when something bad happens. Just sit still and hope for the best or call the sheriff's office. Either way you are likely to become a victim.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
